November 2013 ***Advanced*** Meetup

"How do you deploy?"

Open sessions & round table discussion on WordPress website deployment strategies.  Come out and chat about how you do it, or sit back and see how everyone else does it.

There are no "scheduled" presenters.  Anyone who wishes to present about WordPress deployment strategies is welcome to present.  Just show up ready to go, preferably with a laptop if you have slides.  Please keep your presentation to between 5 and 10 min.

A suggested, but not required, presentation format:

1 - Who you are?

2 - What software do you use to make your deployments work?

3 - What does your dev process look like?

4 - What does your initial launch look like?

5 - What does your incremental update look like?

6 - What is good about your process?

7 - What could be better about it?


Meeting Details:

This is a meetup in our advanced series, and while anyone is welcome to attend, there will be an expectation in the presentations and discussion that attendees have some knowledge of WordPress.

    A couple of the plugins mentioned last night that could help to reduce development environment pains, deployment processes and database related activities:

    A real eye opener for me in terms of what others are doing and the infinite possibilities out there. Special thanks to Mike (again) for sharing your immense WP knowledge.

    Sorry, ended up missing this meetup. Family obligations.
    Hope to get a chance to see some hints of the topics and tricks!

    I'd be happy to share how I host mine as well as paying client's sites on a dedicated server with complete, unattended, automated offsite backups, automated intrusion firewall and complete malware scanning.

    That is if I'll manage to make it to the event.

    A great primer article to help those who aren't sure where to begin with building a better process. The grass really is greener on the other side!

    What's a advance user. Or what I would need to know to be consider Advance?

      Basically the advanced stream is going to be anything not beginner.

      Actual requirements are going to vary from presentation to presentation. This one is, I'm guessing as it's open and we've never done it before, going to be a lot about site management tools, server deployments and everything related to that. So some experience messing around with manual installs of WordPress websites (not using hosted installers like Fantastico) would be helpful background.

    Very much looking forward to this advanced WP meetup. Here are a couple of great recent videos talking specifically about WP deployment strategies from Mark Jaquith:
